AMD ATI Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCIe
The Radeon HD 6950 GPU has been fabricated using the 40nm process, yet AMD has squeezed in 486 million more transistors resulting in a die increase of 16%. The GPU core is clocked at 800MHz and the GDDR5 memory operates at 1250MHz. Pairing that frequency with a 256-bit wide memory bus gives the Radeon HD 6950 a theoretical bandwidth of 160GB/s.
Support for full range of new technologies, including DirectX 11.
Enhanced Quality Anti-Aliasing.
Excellent feature set.
Strong Price to Performance Ratio.
Competing cards offer better value or stronger performance.
Strong competition doesn't cost much more.
